Salad Pizza

Yum
With the heat, light and refreshing meals are a must.
So, when I ran across this knock off CPK pizza, I just had to try it.
It's a keeper!


Salad Pizza is loaded!
A Spring Mix salad in a light balsamic dressing, shaved Parmesan and pieces of prosciutto top a flaky crust.  I think I could eat this everyday!

Ingredients for pizza crust:
1 puff pastry sheet, defrosted
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 cup fresh shaved Parmesan cheese
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Roll out pastry on a lightly floured surface.  Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.  In a small bowl, whisk olive oil, honey, salt and fresh ground pepper.  Brush pastry with half of the olive oil/honey mixture.  Pierce pastry with a few holes.  Bake for 6 minutes at 375 degrees.  Remove from oven and pierce any bubbles that may have formed.  Sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese shavings and bake an additional 4 minutes.  Remove from oven and brush with remaining olive oil/honey.  Cool
Ingredients for salad:
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp honey
salt and pepper to taste
1 5 ounce bag Spring Salad Mix
1 tomato, chopped
1/4 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 - 2 ounces prosciutto
Directions:
In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, lemon juice, minced garlic, honey and salt/pepper to taste.  Toss dressing with salad.  Place salad on top of cooled crust.  Add chopped tomato, Parmesan cheese shavings and prosciutto pieces.  Serve.


Salad Pizza tastes so fresh!  So many flavors from the home-made salad dressing to garden fresh tomatoes, shavings of Parmesan cheese and the pieces of prosciutto.  And the crust?  So light with just the right amount of flavor for a base under all that delicious salad.

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet,
Christine
